This is an impressive amount of rain.

Added bonus of occasional lightning.... and thunder. All of the car alarms in Richard's neighborhood got set off by that last clap.

Not so bonus is that I can't imagine that the high winds and several hours of continuous downpour hasn't caused treefalls, flooding, and slides.

You call this a heat wave? Bah.

I was all ready to show the world that, as much as I tend to melt in the heat, I could tough it out if I wanted to. I shaved my legs and everything.

That being said, having the day free to nap, sit in a cafe with iced tea, wander around the lake and not be roasting is delightful.

I figured out how I survived NY summers: Nocturnalism. Last night's midnight bike ride was delightful, and the muggy air recalled late night walks with Tim and/or Naz. I miss those.

Today the humidity has disappeared. Outside at work it is over 100 degrees, and lucky me, I got go out and check on the building's chillers. Nothing like standing next to exothermic machinery when it is already too hot to sweat*.

*is this normal?

Okay, this is no where even close to New England standards of hot and humid, but I am still going to kvetch.

Clearly summers in upstate New York were survivable, but I am having difficulty right at this moment remembering how I did it. I suspect I was mostly nocturnal and didn't have long bike commutes.

I mean dude, I was sticky even before I got on my bike... and that was before 9!

Also, the rest of the world seems to get the consolation prize of thunderstorms occasionally. I think this is not likely here, today.

Rarely do I wish for a cruiser, but having a half hour to kill as I had just missed my train (as usual), I opted to ride around a bit...

...the weather being beautiful, I suddenly understood the appeal of tooling around on a couch on wheels.
